Who is Erica Simon - ejsimon

I fell in love with typography in High School when I found out type could be used as a form of art. I saw how letters played with each other on paper and what shape they created. From there, I was hooked! I took my love of design to the next level and explored my options in college. Focusing on print, it allowed me to use color, font and imagery to take my explorations to the next level. Because of this, my passion for design grew exponentialy.

Over the last 5 years, I have taken great pride in my design work and always strive to deliver an effective, focused, and on-target product that will fit my client's needs. I have worked under pressure to meet tight deadlines and ensured that my work is produced at the highest level. I enjoy working in a creative team which allows me to explore design options, receive feed back and learn different design methods. My career goals have been to continue to learn and grow as a graphic designer while utilizing my creativity, knowledge and education to benefit my employer.

When I am not exploring the world of design, I hang out with my fiancé and our Goldendoodle Waffles (they are both the loves of my life). The 3 of us explore the city, checking out new dog parks, restaurants and all the things Chicago has to offer.
